State % 62.9% 50.7% 8.4% 2.8% 1.0% 9.7% 27.4%

Frisco has a higher percentage of teachers and professional support than the state average. The same percentage is found for campus administration. Lower percentages exist for central administration, educational aides, and auxiliary staff. These numbers are reflective of the commitment of FISD to provide support to students and teachers at the campus level.

Teachers by Ethnicity
With a state and national decline in percentage of minority teachers available for hire, the best indicator for improvement is yearly gains made by the district. The chart below shows gains for the last four years in professional staffing. While the AEIS report is for 2008-09 data, also included is the hiring information for 2000-10.

Benefits of AP Program
for Students Students who complete AP courses are:
likely to complete more college level work
76

More likely to take additional college courses within the discipline of their AP coursework more likely to graduate with a double major twice as likely to go into advanced study
Willingham & Morris, 1986; UT Study 1988

Benefits of AP Program for Students
Taking AP increases eligibility for scholarships and makes candidates more attractive to colleges.
77

31 percent of colleges and universities consider student’s AP experience when making decisions about which students will receive scholarships. 85 percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student’s AP experience favorably impacts admissions decisions.
Source: Crux Research, Inc., March 2007

AP and the Cost of College
A 2008 study found that AP students had better four-year graduation rates than those who did not take AP. For example, graduation rates for AP English Literature students were 62 percent higher than graduation rates for those who took other English courses in high school. The typical college cost per year for a fouryear public institution is $7,662 for in-state students and $18,629 for out-of-state students. (tuition, fees, and books only)

BOARD OF TRUSTEES AGENDA ITEM

ITEM (BRIEF AGENDA HEADING): Consider and act on direction for employee health insurance plan for 2010-2011

Action Item BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

X

or Information Item

We have studied the advantages and disadvantages of the Frisco ISD self-funded plan and compared it with the TRS ActiveCare plan. We believe we should remain with our current plan at this time but work with our consultant in the areas of benefits and premiums in an effort to more closely mirror the ActiveCare plan. We will continue to monitor our plan's cash reserve and changes made to the ActiveCare plan in an on-going effort to provide our employees the best care at the lowest cost.

RECOMMENDATION: We recommend a motion to approve Frisco ISD participation in their partially self-funded health insurance plan in 2011-2011.
